She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

An Evening With Jacqueline Woodson

When: Tuesday, April 12th at 7:30PM
Where: Town Hall, 1119 8th Ave
Cost: $15, buy tickets here

In the conclusion of this year’s Women You Need to Know series, Seattle Arts & Lectures is bringing poet extraordinaire Jacqueline Woodson. Her most recent work Brown Girl Dreaming (winner of the 2014 National Book Award for Young People’s Lit) focuses on Woodson’s experiences growing up as an African American in the 1960s and ‘70s. Crossing cultures and states, she’ll share the inspirations–the relatives, the friends, the locations–that made this book possible, giving us a small taste of what it was like for her to let go and remember. Woodson is the author of numerous other books, including Beneath a Meth Moon (2012), Peach Locomotion (2009), Hush (2002), and Miracle’s Boys (2000).

About sheswithmeseattle

She's With Me is the brain child of three feminists who got tired of emailing each other every time they caught wind of a womanist event, so they created a separate space to house their feminist calendar. The benefits would be twofold: fewer emails cluttering up their inboxes, and more people learning about Seattle's growing feminist community. She's With Me aims to be a feminist hub, where all the goings on of different organizations are collected in one place. Our plans for the site include reviews/write-ups of events, interviews with local feminist activists, news updates, and essays, poetry, and art by feminists. The Fourth Wave of Feminism is here, and She's With Me will be the feminist scrap book documenting our herstory as it unfolds.
